I absolutely loved this film! It was thrilling, especially trying to figure out who was who before the characters did. I was not at all bothered by lack of special effects, and the plot concept was so deep that I doubt any movie maker could possibly satisfy the full exploration of the concept in just one movie length, even with a big budget. Well done and I loved the accents, it really helped to believe that these people indeed were from all over the world. I am going to google similar movies to watch right now, as this film has inspired me to find others like it. I really did not want it to end. I believe people these days expect way too much and I think the ratings users are giving this film are way too low for the credit deserved.
